OMW, One Man Wolfpack, is a new ski with a wider waist width, slight tip and tail rocker and genius sidecut for competition champions, park rocking locals, and top rippers. This skiâ€™s 89mm waist, non-symmetrical, and burly full wood core laminate sidewall that just keeps bouncing back. Full of energy, packed with performance.
The 2014 OMW was a great ski for all my needs. They were great both inside and outside the park. The graphics are sick and they are absolutely bomb proof. They are on the heavy side, but you hardly feel weight on your feet. Overall I'd give them a 7/10
Awesome ski. Really comparable to the 2012 El Paco. Super fun in the park with some rounded edges but if you would rather keep them sharp these skis will rip on the front side. I've also taken them in some boot deep to knee deep powder and then handle like a dream surprisingly with such a low underfoot. Generally and awesome ski and I like them a lot more than the newer ones.
I originally admired these skis from afar, watching Dale Talkington slay at War of Rails, and saying to myself "Self, Dale goes super hard on them, these should be good for my tempo in the park" So I got them proformed from a local shop, and they did me well this season. took some sizable chunks out of the top sheet but that was inevitable from my skiing style. I thrashed the hell out of these and they are still in good shape, a few edge cracks underfoot but it was a tradeoff with weight I assume, not to put beefier edges to save weight. Super stable on jumps, pretty good swing weight on rails, not too flexible because I weigh nothing at all. Needless yo say, I will be purchasing 2015's
I went from using the Line Mastermind to the Nordica OMW and am very pleased with the ski. Immediately on my first run down the mountain I found the ski to be just as lightweight but with a lot of pop which is great. Also these are a little bit thicker than the mastermind which leads me to believe they'll last a lot longer when doing urban. Overall a great ski, I ski on the east coast, and from doing flips and corks, to grinding large kinks in the streets they're holding up very well, while at the same time being a very playful ski.
